Milner hands in transfer request

Milner hands in transfer request

Just when we thought we had weathered the James Milner storm, KK has suffered a body blow as the lad has handed in a transfer request. A club statement confirmed that if the right offer was received then they would let him go.

Following on from his MOTM display against Coventry last night this is yet another kick in the teeth for us fans who have seen 7 leave and only four come in. With KK having to leave transfers to the likes of Wise, Jiminez and Vetere there seems little hope of the Three Stooges convincing any player to make the move ahead of Monday`s transfer deadline.

A note to Milner, who has disappointed fans with this latest action. Seemingly forcing our hand to get his Villa move leaves a bitter taste and one that will not be forgotten. Despite KK clearly deeming him irreplaceable last night he goes and does this.

As a Gooner I think he's stiched you up here. If he really wanted to go, he should have handed his request in ages ago! At least then you have time to use the money for his replacement. O'neil is a bit of a hypocrite about unsettling players as well.

Milner unsettled himself surely? MON keeps everything well quiet until the bid has been accepted.

I don't blame O'Neill. He hasn't exactly labelled his target a la Fergie / Real etc. The press have had this story all summer but it's the timing that has really got me radged. Why wait until 5 days before the deadline, leaving NUFC no time to get a replacement?

My sentiments exactly SirLes! Still don't think MON is as innocent as he makes out. He may not have used the media to unsettle him, doesn't mean he didn't have a word with an agent.

Have to agree SirLes, terrible timing, he should have done this earlier. We had the same when Nobby decided he was moving back to the Toon from us, he just packed his stuff and was off!

MON has said nothing to the press about Milner i think navydave don't like MON because of what he said about his manager talking to the press about Barry. it's grim down south.
